What the Dinner Table Taught Me About Leadership:
Sharing our Stories to Elevate Others

We can all agree that life brings us many obstacles. It’s what we do with these experiences that make us who we are. 

Your unique journey is what brought you to where you are, and everyone has a story worth sharing. Since the beginning of time, people have been sharing stories as a way to connect, so why should that stop when you walk into the office? Why do we feel the need to put on a mask and be someone we’re not when we go to work?

Personal stories help us connect in meaningful ways to the people around us and give platforms to lift each other up. It’s bringing these experiences into the workplace that creates a pathway toward authentic leadership that elevate teams and move mountains.

Sarah shares her personal story through family conflict, being an expat, and battling an eating disorder to showcase the lessons that can be derived from every challenge that comes our way. She uses these experiences and many more to shape the way she leads her teams.

Keynote takeaways:

  • Elevate your team through authenticity and vulnerability

  • Increase engagement and commitment on your team

  • Enhanced workplace culture where everyone is welcome
